We were ill-advised to come to this street for some shopping and were quite disappointed. If you’ve seriously come all the way around the world to shop at H&M, The Gap, and Louis Vuitton, then Bagdat Caddesi is for you. We took the Dolmus from Kadikoy to Bostanci, then walked for about two hours along this street. It was very... More

Istanbul is amazing, but Bagdat Street is not a highlight. The stores are mostly high-end chain retail shopping. While just walking the street is nice because it is wide with good space for people watching, the Spice Market or Grand Bazaar are much more fun.

I like this street.. It's very good for shopping.. Huge place & all kind of shops are available.. The trees on the sidewalk make the street so romantic & peaceful.. A wide variety of restaurants & coffee shops to dine in or just to enjoy coffee or tea.

Really it doesn't worth the effort if you are visiting Istanbul for the 1st time. It' s far away from the historical center and nothing special. I visited during my 4th visit to Istanbul.

Really enjoyed this street, even when you aren't shopping and especially when the weathers nice. It is a must see on the Asian side and is located parallel to the sea side which is nice for a walk too.

We took a bus number 4 from Kadikoy to Bostanci , and strolled down this modern long street full of a variety of shops and restaurants until we came across this beautiful Yıl Park.

Lovely shopping avenue, with a lot of great dining options. Crowded but not overwhelming like the european side. If u need a break and a reliable good meal, this is the place. The best thing about it is that no one treats u like a tourist there!
